Your best getting a sony tube superflat CRT monitor. A lot better than TFT Brighter and have good resolution & cheap these days.

As for the raptors theres no real difference in the performance of the two.

For Value your better getting two 36K raptors in a Raid 0 array & two 7k250 160gig drives in a raid 0 array.

Cheaper than getting 2x74K raptors.

Your Boot drive raptors will carry all the 'Use all the time programs' and your 7k250's for all others, downloads, films etc.

That totals nearly 400gig storage for the price of 148gig.

As you might have guessed thats my next project.

I backup all my dvd's to HD, and at 4.5 gig a peace they soon add up.

All legal and above board i hasten to add.

Lol - yep!

What isn't legal and above board is downloading a film and selling it on for half the price at a boot sale!

I dont sell the origional, just make a copy for the kids to use/destroy.

If your origional is ruined theres no comeback/replacement policies, hence it being legal to copy the origional.
